To recognize people, neighborhood groups, or other assets that make Troy such a wonderful, diverse city, TRIP honors a “Troy Treasure” annually. This awardee is selected from nominations submitted by residents or groups. Nominations are limited to volunteers, businesses or groups who have a several year history of improving Troy.
A “Troy Treasure” is a Troy resident, community group, or business that:
• Is passionately committed to improving Troy
• Toils in his or her neighborhood out of a love of community
• Demonstrates her/his pride in Troy in very positive and real ways
The 2015 Troy Treasure is Mack Henderson on behalf of his leadership with the Troy Central Little League and his commitment to the children of North Central Troy. Help recognize Mack at TRIP/RCHR’s Annual Homecoming Dinner on October 19, 2015. For more information or tickets, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
